Privacy Statement

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used on this site.

The Information We Collect

In the course of our functions and activities, Ballet Theatre of Queensland (BTQ) collects personal information from members, ticket buyers, and susbcribers to newsletters, sponsors and persons who donate or provide support to the organisation. The information we collect generally includes your title, name, email address, postal address and other contact details.

How We Use the Information

We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries, and to offer you other products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

Agents and contractors of BTQ who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for BTQ.

BTQ maintains professional confidentiality when collecting health information from members; gains consent to obtain it, and will disclose it to the health professional administering any emergency health care. All medical forms are destroyed when they are no longer required.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice.

BTQ will never disclose personally identifiable information to any outside organization or companies that want to market products or services to you.

If you believe you are receiving our communications in error or no longer desire to receive them, you should inform us and we will remove your name from our mailing lists. BTQ will be judicious in the use of e-mail and paper mail for all communications.
